Pacquiao vs Hatton Set For May 2, 2009; De La Hoya's Bravado

It seems Ricky Hatton's worst dream isn't coming true as Bob Arum, Manny Pacquiao's promoter told that the Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton match up will be on May 2, 2009 and in Vegas. PPV numbers is the major consideration for the upcoming bout and the unpredictable English weather didn't help.

Oscar De La Hoya's Pre-fight Bravado

"I'm scared, I'm scared . . . I'm scared of what I can do to him"

"A knockout, that's my goal," De La Hoya says. "I can knock you out with one punch. My left is lethal. I can cut you up with a straight jab. If I land an uppercut with full force, the fight's over."

Oscar De La Hoya is the recent addition to the No Mas Club which Manny Pacquiao established back in January of 1995. All the pre-fight bravado and tough talk dished out by Oscar was reduced to nothing as the quiet and little Filipino let his fist do the talking and made the Giant's face into a punching bag for eight rounds. Oscar ate all his words. He thought he made a great and intelligent decision. He thought Pacquiao was easy picking. He knew he can knock Pacquiao out and even predicted the round - fifth. However, Pacquiao refused to join the De La Hoya Redemption Show and bombarded him with left and combos to submission. Pacquiao's left was so fast De La Hoya looked like a statute. The fight was De La Hoya's supposed ego-booster but turned into ego-buster. He was battered and bruised. He was SHOCKED. He was OWNED. This midget is supposed to lose but...that must be running in Oscar's head the entire fight. A small man whom he underestimated put him in the hospital. He would have gone out in a much better way had he fought Margarito. Instead, Oscar De La Hoya took the easy road and got pummeled. Boxers who do that deserved to be punished.

This was Manny's response to Oscar tirades:

"Don't just say it. Do it."

He did it and Oscar was sent to the Hospital - no talk just all action...


Quote of the Day from

In responding to transfer speculation about players on his squad, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis told reporters, "If these players piss me off, then, OK, they can piss off to England. But they need to understand this: The English live badly, eat badly and their women do not wash their [private parts]. To them, a bidet is a mystery.",0,3475563.story
